The oem tyres are Super Corsa’s, which I didn’t like, so I changed for the Pilot Road 3. Although they were much better in the wet, they felt as if they were slipping out on corners to me, so my last set of tyres were the Bridgestone S20 EVO. As I was quite happy twitch them, I replaced the rear for the same thing, after 4189 miles.
I had Bridgestone S20 on my MT-09 previously. Really liked the way it behaved in wet. Never had any scary moments on them. The Dunlop BT016 I have at the moment on the gixxer made me crap my pants a few times during my BikeSafe this Saturday. Almost lost the bike twice on bends, could feel both wheels sliding at the same time. Not cool. I’ll probably keep them till the end and put something decent on afterwards.
The Bridgestone Battlax BT range is being changed to…
T range (Touring and Sports Touring) e.g. the T30 which superceeds the BT-023 to BT-045
S range (Sports) e.g. the S20 and S20 EVO which superceed the BT-016 PRO and BT-090
R range (Racing) e.g. the R10 which superceeds the BT-003 RS
